Liz Dawson

Accredited Exercise Physiologist & Pilates Plus Facilitator & Owner
Liz Dawson is an ESSA Accredited Exercise Physiologist (AEP), Pilates instructor and Owner and Director of Northside Allied Health. Since graduating with a Bachelor of Science: Human Movement Studies in 2009, Liz has worked in weight management with Wesley Health, rehabilitation for ex service men and women through the Department of Veterans Affairs (Oct 2011). Her work in this area inspired her to established Northside Allied Health.

Whilst working with weight management clients, Liz recognized the importance of a well developed core and eff

icient muscle recruitment patterns. To achieve this Liz has focused on the Pilates technique to improve client’s wellbeing and enable them to take part in exercise programs

. The rehabilitation work has highlighted the importance of exercise as preventative tool.

Liz has used the Pilates principles with her Veteran clients (age ranging from 30-80) to address issues arising from a wide variety of acute and chronic injuries. The benefits seen by practicing Pilates once per week have been significant. Re-educating clients using movement patterns and realignment of their posture has helped to reduce their pain levels as well as increasing their range of movements, allowing them to participate in activities with energy and enthusiasm.
